SCU employees must maintain a standard of behavior that demonstrates respect and concern for, for each other and for the people served through the university. The university identifies several types of behavior that indicate a severe lack of judgment or disregard for SCU, its employees and its constituency. The list below contains examples of such behavior, but it is not intended to be an exhaustive list.
Dishonesty includes but is not limited to:
· The unauthorized use or removal of property that belongs to SCU or fellow employees
· Operating equipment for personal benefit, unless authorized in advance
· Intentional waste of SCU supplies
· Falsification of records or related misconduct
The use of alcohol or any illegal substance is prohibited at SCU. An employee reporting to work under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or use alcohol or illegal drugs on university property is subject to immediate discharge. The use of tobacco, alcohol, or illegal drugs in any form is prohibited for employees of SCU.
Disregard for Fellow Employees
In a professional work environment, there is no place for threats, profanity, verbal abuse or physical assault. These types of behavior destroy the working relationships that are essential for effective teamwork. Also, if an employee engages in misconduct on or off SCU property that severely limits one’s ability to work effectively with co-workers, disciplinary action may result.
Intentional Destruction of Property
Employees may not destroy damage or deface property that belongs to SCU or a fellow employee.
